Genre/Form: History: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Houghton, Samuel G. (Samuel Gilbert), Trace of desert waters. Glendale, Calif.   The "essence of the American desert," as the subtitle of Craig Childs's book has it, is water. A desert, by definition, lacks it, but when water does come, it comes in torrential, sometimes devastating abundance. Childs, a thirtysomething desert rat with a vast knowledge of the Southwest's remote corners, knows this fact well/5. In his quest to find water in the desert, Child delves deep into what it means to be alive, to exist, to be a rock, a tree, or a simple organism. In this book Childs has created a meditation on life and death, fecundity and bareness - on the nature of the universe/5(). Thats really a remarkable sentence appearing near the very end of this book and it goes a long way towards explaining what the book is about. This a social history, of sorts, written by a multi-racial geology professor. She traces her history, and in so doing traces the countrys history as well/5.
